    Annually, global warming contributes to more than 150,000 deaths and 5 million illnesses. Those numbers are expected to double by 2030. Research data show that global warming may affect human health in the following ways: speeding the spread of infectious diseases (malaria/dengue fever, for example); creating conditions that lead to potentially fatal malnutrition and diarrhea; and increasing the likelihood of heat waves, floods, and other natural disasters. Data also show that global warming is particularly hard on people in poor countries. This is ironic, since those people have contributed the least to global warming.
